Go this link for the Austin Rover forum. This is a rather interesting site full of strange vehicles and rare pics of prototypes from Peugeot Talbot.

*hangs head in shame* I always thought these Talbots were FWD, in fact after the Renault 10 and Alpines I thought all French cars were FWD.

But these do look a lot like driveshafts on the back of the Tagora?

Wikipedia sez:

As with most large cars of its time, the Tagora was a rear-wheel drive vehicle, with a longitudinally-mounted engine. There were three engine choices, mated to four- and five-speed manual transmissions or an optional three-speed automatic in the case of the four-cylinder engines.[1][9]

The available models were:

2.2 L (2165 cc) Type 180 OHC I4, double-barrel Solex carburetor, 115 PS (85 kW), 184 N·m (136 ft·lbf)
The base engine was a version of the older Simca Type 180 2-litre with increased displacement, as also featured in the Matra Murena. It was unrelated to either the American Chrysler K or PSA Douvrin 2.2-litre engines.[2] Available trim levels were designated GL and GLS. The GL was the only model to feature the four-speed manual transmission, and have power steering as an option rather than standard. It was first to be dropped, for the 1983 model year.
2.3 L (2304 cc) XD2S OHV turbodiesel I4, 80 PS (59 kW), 188 N·m (139 ft·lbf)
This Peugeot-developed turbodiesel was primarily used in the Peugeot 505 and 604. The diesel-powered version of the Tagora was designated DT.
2.7 L (2664 cc) PRV OHC V6, two triple-barrel Weber carburetors, 166 PS (122 kW), 234 N·m (173 ft·lbf)
The V6 model, which was actually badged "2.6", came in the top SX trim level, loaded with extras, but (surprisingly) it was not available with automatic transmission.[9] The PRV engine used in the Tagora was different from the one used in contemporary Peugeots in that it was fitted with triple-barrel Weber carburetors rather than fuel injection, resulting in a higher power rating. This made it the most powerful French car of its time.[1] Nevertheless, only 1,083 V6 Tagoras were made.[10]


The angle of the sump pan might have led you to think otherwise!

I have to say I always had the feeling that Tagoras were FWD - no idea why really. I think the last RWD French car though was the Pug 505, which was made up until about 1991.
